The Suffolk River Heritage Foundation will
present a workshop on preserving your family heritage
and history on Tuesday, November 15, 2016, at the CE&H
Ruritan Community Hall at 8850 Eclipse Drive, Suffolk,
Virginia, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Refreshments will be provided.
Have you wished your ancestors had left a more complete
record of who they were and how they lived their lives?
Do you have family pictures and you don't know much about
people in them? Will future generations of your family
wish you had preserved what you know of family heritage
and history so that they will know more about you and
At the Suffolk River Heritage Foundation (formerly the
CE&H Heritage Foundation) we often receive inquiries
from individuals asking about how to preserve their family's
history. We have considerable experience in this, resulting
from our writing and publishing The River Binds Us, which
documented the history and heritage of the Crittenden,
Eclipse, and Hobson watermen villages of northwestern
Our development of and presentation of "A Heritage
How-To Workshop" is in reply to those inquiries.
We will have a brief presentation providing an overview
of the possible steps for preserving a family history
and then provide breakout areas dealing with the steps.
These will include determining the scope of your effort,
approaches to family researching, possible technologies,
types of publishing approaches, etc.
